Happy in Our Skin

Author: Fran Manushkin
Illustrator: Lauren Tobia
Publisher: Walker

A poetic text invites young children to think about how skin shapes who we are, as individuals and as human beings collectively – how skin feels, looks and its function. Lauren Tobia’s cheerful illustrations depict a mixed heritage family who are introduced welcoming a new baby, to whom the words are directed, and who appear throughout the book often surrounded by a diverse range of people from their community.
